We were having our cousins over for dinner and I was craving something really chocolaty for dessert. I searched through some books as well as the internet
and I ultimately found the perfect slice of heaven! Fran Bigelow's Deep Chocolate Torte
. What mostly attracted me to this recipe was that it was from Fran's
chocolate shop in Seattle. If you ever want a really special treat, order a box of chocolate or some of her fudge sauce. It is a special indulgence.
I also made a really simple raspberry sauce, with fresh raspberries on the side. To make the sauce; put a pint of raspberries and a few tablespoons of sugar in the food processor. Process then put mixture through a fine mesh sieve. In the end, you have a simple, smooth sauce for most desserts.
We started out with cheese straws
, some olives and some dried salami.
Isaac fell in love with his new cousin, Jordan Zoey
. He could not get enough of her and can't wait to see her again.
